Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Biology, General for the Years 1996-97 and 1999-00.
Howe, Richard D.
This report is part of an annual national survey that examines salaries of full-time teaching faculty in 54 selected academic disciplines. Data for the study were collected from a total of 296 public and 390 private four-year institutions from a baseline year of 1996-97 to the trend year of 1999-2000. This portion of the study covers salary data for biology, general faculty at 278 public and 352 private institutions. A data table lists average salaries for both public and private participating institutions by faculty rank, faculty mix percent, and salary factors. Salary trend information is compared for public and private institutions for each of the two study periods with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. The study found that for the 1999-2000 period the average salary of $58,339 for 4,715 biology, general faculty in public institutions was 1.7 percent lower and the average salary of $53,169 for 2,270 faculty in private institutions was 2.9 percent lower than the average salary for all faculty in all major fields, and, respectively, 1.0 percent per year below and 0.7 percent per year above the cost of living as measured by the Consumer Price Index. Appended is a list of the 54 selected academic disciplines and lists of the participating public and private colleges. (SM)
